Strikes Close French Museums
ITS SO MUCH CRAZY STUFF GOIN ON IN THE WORLD, DAMN!!!!!!! I HAD THE OPPORTUNITY TO GO IN HERE AND TAKE PICTURES IT WAS AMAZING. THIS IS A MUST SEE WHENEVER YOU GO TO PARIS
The Louvre Museum and the royal palace at Versailles closed Thursday as the French museum workers’ strike began to gather strength. The AP paints a scene of tourists gathered outside the Louvre unable to enter past the blockade of protesting workers. Workers at the Francois Mitterrand National Library in southeast Paris have voted to join the strike Friday. At this point it is not known how many workers are on strike. The culture minister has remained adamant that France cannot make an exception for museum workers in the sweeping government staff reductions and that the museums must find a way to survive with fewer employees.
